§ Mr. CROOKE
asked the Minister of of Health the number of sick and accident cases relieved each year since the passing of the National Health Insurance Act; the number of women relieved each year; the number of men relieved each year; the total number of weeks of relief; and the total number of insured persons each year?
In the year 1923 there were, approximately, 13,317,900 insured persons in England and Wales, of whom
8,992,100 were men and
4,325,800 were women,2288W
